REGINA – Upwards of 6,000 people have cast ballots in advance of this week’s sewage treatment plant referendum in Regina.

There were lineups at some locations when the polls opened on Saturday.

The city clerk’s office says the turnout was higher than during the three days of advanced voting for last year’s municipal election.

Voters are deciding whether they want the city to own and operate the upgraded plant, other whether a public-private partnership, or P-3, should be involved.

The referendum goes Wednesday.
